I am making some light weight fall sleeping gowns, but my serger does not like sewing this thin knit so i used some scraps left from my wash-a-way stabilizer, cut it in long strips and serge it along the edges, work great, then just rinsed it out.

I learned to do the same thing, but I use the wash-a-way that is sticky on one side. That way it stays in place and I don't have to fool around with getting everything lined up to go in the serger.

yes , I bet that helps.

You can use the same idea on your regular sewing machine also, when the fabric is to thin or skips stitches on a knit.
